  1. DON’T PAIR YOUR LEGGINGS WITH A TIGHT TOP:  Wearing a tight top with your leggings is a BIG NO as it can make your outfit appear inexpensive. You should balance things up by pairing it with flowy or big tops that will not cling to you. You can also wear oversized shirts, sweaters or even jackets.
  2. DON’T WEAR TRANSPARENT LEGGINGS: This one does not even need any explanation. Let us not even try to explain transparent leggings. This wardrobe staple should be THICK so that only you know what is going on underneath your clothes. You can test them by stretching the fabric and looking through light to see how transparent the material really is. That is why it is not advisable to buy them online.
  3. DON’T WEAR SKIN TONED OR LIGHT COLOURED LEGGINGS: Please don’t. Do not even try. Skin toned and coloured leggings are most times transparent, they are also unflattering, which is the opposite of what we are trying to achieve. Whether they match your own skin tone or not, they can easily be mistaken as bare legs.
  4. DON’T WEAR LEGGINGS THAT ARE TOO SMALL OR TOO LARGE: Leggings that are too tight can also create an unflattering top on the waist that was never there, to begin with. On the contrary, the ones that are too large can cause tight folds around the bottom and waistline.
  5. DO WEAR LONGER SHIRTS: Wearing longer shirts or preferably short dresses creates the most flattering look. Tunics and shirt dresses are also a good choice.
  6. DO WEAR PATTERNED LEGGINGS: Patterned leggings can add some zing to your wardrobe. When you wear patterned, you can really go for any colour but make sure you choose a pattern that is grounded by darker colours or has a dark background.
  7. DO DRESS FOR THE SEASON: Leggings are a great option during the cold and windy season because they pair really well with sweaters and coats of any kind. They also fit snugly into high boots and booties.
